Our hp cameras are getting old and my wife wants a new smaller digital camera. The old hp has a sort of big lense that protrudes and moves in and out to focus. I'd kinda like one that didn't have that much mechanical stuff to break. I also want to be able to take fairly high resolution movies with it and I want a camera for around $100 on sale or ebay. Shes not a photographer and pretty much only takes daylight pictures largely of landscapes and flower close ups sp a macro function would be nice.
These are my own opinions based on wisdom earned through many wrong decisions. Your mileage may vary.
